Sustainability

ActiTech values the earth—and its inhabitants. Our company exemplifies this commitment. Whether it is conducting business to reflect environmental responsibility, creating products that set a new standard for purity, or supporting charitable causes to help those in need, we recognize the significance of our impact on the world.

Sustainability is defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations. From a business perspective, sustainability requires the integration of environmental, social, and economic factors into commerce and decision-making. To this end, ActiTech is committed to reducing its environmental burden while increasing our economic and social benefits.

In keeping with the Sustainability Principles of the Personal Care Products Council, we strive to:

  • Maintain the health, safety, and well being of employees, consumers, and the communities in which we conduct business.
  • Incorporate responsibilities for environmental, economic, and social performance into our corporate governance structure.
  • Understand and address the environmental, economic, and social impacts of their products throughout the product life cycles, including the supply chain and end-of-life.

  • Identify and pursue opportunities to continually improve environmental performance in ways that align with business goals.
  • Encourage their suppliers and other value chain partners to take action on sustainability.
  • Adhere to internationally recognized principles and norms of behavior concerning universal human and labor rights.
  • Recognize and act on principles of economic responsibility throughout the value chain.
  • Communicate clearly and transparently with stakeholders about our approach and actions related to sustainability.
